Cool Stuff: Muto

Blu is a street artist based in Bologna, Italy. There is very little information of the biographical sort available on this man, leading me to believe he is either a robot, a unicorn or a robot unicorn. Regardless, he is undeniably talented, as his 7-minute stop-motion graffiti short, Muto, will attest. The Tate Modern Museum […]

Cool Stuff: We R Super Heroes

Today we have another music video, We R Super Heroes, by Robbert Bobbert and the Bubble Machine. Robbert Bobbert is the children’s music alter ego of Apples In Stereo frontman Robert Schneider. The music video was directed by PUNY Entertainment.   (via @t_animation, Cartoon Brew)

Cool Stuff: Dead All Along

Dead All Along has compelling visuals to go along with some equally cool music. This music video follows a child named Yorick. He enters a magic kingdom after being enchanted by a pixie. Upon his return home, he finds time has ravaged all he had known. The video was animated by MFA student, Giles Timms […]

Cool Stuff: Urs

The 10-minute short follows Urs as he sets out on a journey to find a better life for he and his aging mother. Urs was completed in March of 2009 and is currently making its […]

Cool Stuff: Her Morning Elegance

I’m told that if you love something you should set it free. If it comes back to you, then it’s meant to be. (That was entirely stupid. I apologize.) I saw this music video for Oren Lavie’s song, Her Morning Elegance awhile ago. I completely forgot about it because there was no site blog with […]

Cool Stuff: A Record of Life

I enjoyed this short because it allowed me to zone out and simply absorb the imagery. Sometimes, that’s just what you’re in the mood for. This tasty bit of animation loosely follows the evolution of life on our tiny blue planet and was created by Owen Gately & Luke Jinks. A Record Of Life from […]

Cool Stuff: The Cat Piano

You’ll find some great use of color in this somewhat dark short from the People’s Republic of Animation. In The Cat Piano, we follow our feline protagonist as he attempts to find the source behind a string of kidnappings. This short was directed by Eddie White & Ari Gibson and produced by Jessica Brentnall. The […]

Cartoon Intro Cavalcade: "Thundercats" Ho!

From the opening trumpets, to the over-the-top whining electric guitars, to the beautifully detailed and yet still fluid animation, there’s only one word suitable to describe the Thundercats opening theme, “badass”. It’s a slick 1:15 of animation that gets you entirely psyched up to watch a cartoon that’s not nearly as good as what you […]
